The house from which we operated Sophea Gallery & Tibetan has been sold and regrettably the new owner does not wish to continue with the business.

Announcing the End of an Era

The time has come for us to finally implement why we came to the Cape all of 20 years ago.which is to offer spiritual retreats. We are moving out at end August 2016, but are discontinuing our current business format from the end of March 2016. We will be ending formal exhibitions in the gallery and stopping our restaurant and retail activities. As of end April we will be focusing on doing retreats and other events in our Sanctuary at Sophea Gallery & Tibetan Teahouse until the new owner takes possession of this beautiful house end August 2016.

We will then host our events and retreats at other venues after that.

Thank you

We wish to thank all our lovely and wonderfully loyal customers who graced our door with your presence over the past 15 years. Most of you have become our friends. We thank you for that and we look forward to staying connected with you. Please keep in touch.

Our heartfelt appreciation also to all the other people who made this place special... our artists, all the presenters of the events we hosted and those who attended our events. All our suppliers, both locally and overseas, the media who graciously gave us unsolicited coverage and last, but not least, our gratitude to our staff over all these years.

We truly appreciate all you have meant to us over these last 15+ years.
